    Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis Anti-Fertility Properties?


    I was researching online about a supplement which contains Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis and found a couple of websites which show that their have been studies which concluded Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis as have anti fertility properties. Is this true? Because the supplement seems to be very popular!

    Anabolic steroids have anti-fertility properties.

    Hmm.. well this is a pSARM correct? So it does have some activity on Androgen receptors but I don't think it's got enough to make anyone infertile. Link would be nice.

    [i]STUDIES ON THE ANTIFERTILITY POTENTIALITY OF HIBISCUS ROSA SINENSIS
    Parts of medicinal value; selection of species and seasonal variations


    S. D. Kholkute1, V. Mudgal2, K. N. Udupa
    Surgical Research Laboratory, Institute of Medical Science, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi 221005, India

    Abstract

    Hibiscus rosa sinensis flowers, leaves and stembarks collected during winter, spring, rainy and summer seasons were hot extracted with benzene and screened for post-coital antifertility activity in female albino rats. Only flower portion showed significant activity which was maximum during winter followed by spring then rainy and minimum in summer season. The benzene extract of flowers of Hibiscus mutabilis, Hibiscus schizopetalus and Malvasicus grandiflorus, resembling H. rosa sinensis in petaloid structure and collected during their respective flowering season(s), failed to show any significant effect on pregnancy.[i]
    ....I'll see what else I can find.

    and then the other side...

    EFFECTS OF HIBISCUS ROSA SINENSIS ON PREGNANCY OF RATS

    S. D. Kholkute, K. N. Udupa
    Surgical Research Laboratory, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi - 221 005 India
    Abstract

    The total benzene extract of Hibiscus rosa sinensis (China rose plant) flowers showed potent, orally effective antifertility activity in albino rats when administered from day 1 to 10 of pregnancy. This activity of the extract was found to depend upon the dose and duration of treatment. The extract was not found to affect the tubual transport of the zygote as well as blastocyst per se from implanting. However, as studied by pontamine blue reaction and administration of extract during implantation, it seems that, at least in 70 % of the females, the antifertility activity of the drug was mediated via interruption in implantation. The results obtained by delayed implantation technique further suggest that the extract, in one way or other, alters the delicate estrogen-progesterone balance. The pregnancy maintenance by higher dose of oestrone in extract treated females further lend support to the curtailment of estrogen. However, invoking „anti-implantation factor” alone, is not responsible enough to achieve full contraception and the drug causes obsorption of foetus.
    Lol two contradicting studies. No surprise there.

    ....

    Anti-Fertility Activity of a Benzene Extract of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis Flowers on Female Albino Rats

    M. P. Singh, R. H. Singh, K. N. Udupa
    Dept. of Kayachikitsa, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India
    Abstract

    Various extracts of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis flowers have been studied for their antifertility activity on female albino rats. Benzene extract was found to be the most effective. For isolation of active constituents, the benzene extract was separated chemically into a number of fractions and their antifertility activities were studied systematically. The ether soluble portion of the water insoluble fraction of a benzene extract showed significant anti-implantation and abortifacient activities.

    Keep in mind these are all benzene (benzol) based.

    Is there another base or some other way of extracting it that companies use besides benzol?

    aqueous and alcohol/ethanol. ASGT contains the prefered cold aqueous extract:

    Anabolic effect of Hibiscus rosasinensis Linn. leaf extracts in immature albino male rats.
    Olagbende-Dada SO, Ezeobika EN, Duru FI.

    Department of Pharmacognosy, Faculty of Pharmacy, College of Medicine, University of Lagos, Idi-Araba, Lagos, Nigeria.
    Abstract
    Many plants remedies have been employed in solving man's health needs especially the nutritive value which enhances health living. Aphrodisiac plants are plants with anabolic properties i.e. they help in protein synthesis and enhances sexual abilities in males. They are also known as androgenic plants because their properties are similar to that of androgen a male hormone. Cold aqueous extract of Hibiscus rosasinensis leaves is reported by local traditional practioners in Western Nigeria to be aphrodisiac.

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the anabolic properties of Hibiscus rosasinensis.

    MATERIALS AND METHOD: Three groups (8/group) of immature male rats of known weights were administered equal doses of aqueous (cold and hot) and alcoholic extracts of Hibiscus rosasinensis leaves for 8 weeks. The gain in body and isolated sexual organs (testis, epididymis, seminal vesicle and prostate) weights were determined after treatment and compared to the value obtained from a fourth untreated group which served as the control. Section through the testes of both the treated and untreated rats were also examined microscopically and displayed as a photomicrograph for comparism. All data were statistically analysed and displaced in graphic form.

    RESULTS: Over the 8 weeks of treatment, the control, the cold aqueous extract dosed, hot aqueous extract dosed and alcoholic extract dosed rats gained 8%, 15%, 18% and 22% in body weights respectively. The increase in the weight of testis, epididymis, seminal vesicle and prostate of the alcoholic extract dosed rats was 19%, 30%, 31% and 40% respectively.

    CONCLUSION: The anabolic effect of the leaf extracts of H. rosasinensis is hereby established. More work needs to be done on these leaf extracts to know their effect on the gonadotrophin hormones which regulate the activity of the androgens in relation to spermatogenesis.
